Aerohive - Reconnecting AP's After HiveManager Update

After updating the HiveManager Online OS some of our APs where not connecting to the HiveManager Online. This is because these APs where not connected during the upgrade procces and thus they didn't recieve the new settings regarding CAPWAP. This can be easily fixed by setting up an SSH connection to the APs in question and running the following commands:

Select All Code:
APX#no hive manager
APX#hive manager "hm-useastXX-XX.earohive.com" primary
APX#no capwap client enable
APX#capwap client enable

Note: This is the hostname of the current HiveManager Online WebPortal.

Reboot the AP if necessary using the reboot command from within the CLI. After that check the current status using:

Select All Code:
APX#show capwap client
